The latest round of layoffs at Meta, which were first announced in March, began on Wednesday with workers in technical positions.
On Wednesday morning, employees with technical expertise in user experience, software engineering, graphics programming,
and other positions notified their terminations on LinkedIn. A Meta representative told CNBC that the cuts had already begun.
One affected employee told CNBC that Meta planned to eliminate business-facing positions including finance, legal,
and HR starting in May in addition to the teams working on products. The worker,
who spoke openly about the layoffs on the condition of anonymity, claimed that Meta had suggested
that IT teams that weren't affected by Wednesday's cuts would potentially be included in layoffs next month.
The layoffs also appeared to have impacted a number of workers who worked as game programmers, according to LinkedIn posts.
